Ottawa's photo radar cameras caught thousands of speeding drivers in April, as the city of Ottawa continues to expand the automated speed enforcement camera program in school zones and high speed locations.

New statistics show Ottawa's 40 photo radar cameras issued 37,285 speeding tickets in April, after issuing 43,416 tickets in March. So far in 2024, 121,652 speeding tickets have been issued by the photo radar cameras.

Two of Ottawa's newest photo radar cameras in 2024 were the busiest cameras in April.  The camera on King Edward Avenue, between Cathcart Street and St. Patrick Street, issued 5,803 tickets last month. The photo radar camera on King Edward Avenue, on the busy road connecting Ottawa and Gatineau, issued 7,569 tickets in March during its first month of operation.

The new photo radar camera on Jeanne d'Arc Boulevard, between Orleans Boulevard and Paddler Way, issued 2,112 tickets in April, its second month of operation.

A total of 1,214 drivers were ticketed for speeding by the photo radar camera on Bronson Avenue at Carleton University, while 1,160 speeders were caught by the camera on Riverside Drive near Mooney's Bay.

King Edward Avenue is home to Ottawa's busiest automated speed enforcement camera so far this year. The camera on King Edward, between Cathcart Street and St. Patrick Street, has issued 13,372 tickets in its first two months of operation in 2024.

The city of Ottawa continues to expand the automated speed enforcement camera program across the city, with plans for 60 cameras by the end of 2024. Eight new cameras were activated in the first three months of the year. 

The automated speed enforcement program resulted in 220,789 speeding tickets in 2023.
